ROME – Juventus-Naples prohibited to the fans (therefore also of the Juve) born in Campania? The news went crazy on the internet on Thursday 8 August but the police headquarters in Turin denied everything.
According to the rumors that were circulating in the morning, the same police headquarters agreed to prohibit the sale of coupons for the Juventus-Napoli championship game, scheduled for next August 31, to those born in Campania. "The police headquarters in Turin – the official note reads – has never agreed on this decision with the sports club nor does it intend to share it".
Juventus-Napoli are still three weeks away, but the big league match scheduled for August 31 at the Allianz Stadium has already sparked controversy related to ticket sales. Everything stems from the communication by Juventus of the ban on the sale of coupons to those born in Campania, not only to residents.
In a note, the police headquarters in Turin stated that it had "never agreed to this decision with the sports club or intend to share it". On its official website, Juventus replied stating that the restrictions on the sale of tickets "were communicated, by certified e-mail, to the competent offices on 4 August at 4 pm". "The methods of sale of the coupons – underlines Juventus – could undergo variations, even substantial, only following the determinations of the National Observatory on sporting events, which has not yet met".
On social media, however, the controversy has flared up. "Stadium prohibited to those born in Campania? Perhaps Juventus has not noticed and has misapplied a council of the Turin police station, "writes Gad Lerner, for which this announcement constitutes" a very serious precedent for practical racism applied ".
